Art and Dorothy Healy Speak: Now that we are back home from our first International Shuffleboard Association World Tournament (ISA) in Brazil, we would like to show our appreciation to the folks who followed us during our shuffleboard adventure.
The schedule kept us going each day from 5:30 a.m. until evening. Even though we did not win Gold Medals for Canada we certainly won many lifetime memories!!
Shufflers from around the world we now can call friends. There are so many to thank we feel it best not to mention individual names as someone could be missed.
The Brazilian Shuffleboard organization for hosting the event, Myrna Bilton the ISA President, Glen Monroe the Tournament Director, and I can’t forget the volunteers who kept the courts in condition, plus their assistance for Dorothy (my wife) when required.
THANK YOU to all.
Our 10 days in Brazil were most enjoyable and will be remembered..
Congratulations to Ellen Hansson from Norway who was the ladies Golden Cue winner, and Michael Hirsch from U.S.A. who was the men’s Golden Cue winner. ( Golden Cue winners are those who finish first overall in the Tournament.)
We thank St. Lawrence News and The Renfrew Mercury for their send off articles, and to all who contacted us with best wishes before leaving for Brazil.
Many Many thanks to all.
